Glue between drywall pieces?

I'm patching 32" x 32" and 32" x 16" sections of drywall. The existing wall thickness requires 5/8" plus 1/4" drywall. Is there a glue that I should use between the two pieces of drywall? If so, what type? I have considered but, will not use shims between the studs and 5.8" drywall.

You can use almost any construction adhesive, but one made specifically for drywall may be more viscous than what we use for framing and decking. Use longer screws, too so they will penetrate the studs behind the patches, as standard 1 5/8 screws will be marginal at best. Go for 2".

I don't see any reason to glue the 2 sheets together. Once screwed, taped and finished - it ain't going anywhere.
